3 Superb New Ambient Releases
This is The Ghost Between The Strings' second contribution to the ongoing "Constant" series. This time, the artist was improvising, and found some music he liked-- this happened rather suddenly-- call it serendipity. We at Treetrunk like this piece very much, and think it fits in nicely with the label and series.http://www.archive.org/details/Constant_24
Darrell Burgan has released another album under his Palancar project, this time a collection of three introspective ambient pieces representing 'moments' from his childhood that changed the direction of his life. The music is textural, somewhat dark, but quite approachable and suitable for either active or passive listening. Darrell is privileged to have his music released on Treetrunk, one of his favorite netlabels, and hopes that there will be more Palancar music on Treetrunk in the future.
Treetrunk really likes this music and thinks you will, too.http://www.archive.org/details/Three_Moments
For "Constant 23", Phillip Wilkerson offers a quasi-organic sitar-sounding drone that seems to twist and grow (complete with pops and crackles), in a kind of psychedelic time-lapse haze. This long-form drone is further enhanced by nurturing, transcendent harmonies floating in a luscious and spacious ambience.
Constant 23 is designed for endless loop play for hours of seamless enjoyment.
Treetrunk Records really enjoys this version of Constant, and hopes you will, toohttp://www.archive.org/details/Constant_23
